Forum: texts Subject: "Error: Document base stream is not seekable" with some big PDFs

It's been reported on http://www.archive.org/details/californiacensus00reel148

The same for http://www.archive.org/details/VocabolarioDellaLinguaItaliana2 :
$ file Zingarelli.pdf
Zingarelli.pdf: PDF document, version 1.5
$ pdfinfo Zingarelli.pdf
Error: Document base stream is not seekable
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7334 says: «That's right, the base stream needs to be seekable or otherwise poppler does
not work at all».)

Evince can't do anything:
$ evince Zingarelli.pdf
Error: Document base stream is not seekable
